and for my birthday I got a comet...

I have just seen The McNaught Comet.

It's clearly visible in the SW corner of my darkening sky here.

The sun has set but the residual light is still glowing with a feeble blue in the west and just above that is a clear view of the comet with its long and pretty "tail".

It's not everyone who can boast of getting a comet on their birthday huh?

One of my more unique birthday presents I think :)

Happy belated birthday Michelle. I think it's important to acknowledge birthdays - - so many peole want to forget them but it is our special day to feel like God has singled us out to praise. That's how I look at it anyway.

I am sending you a cyber birthday cake with all the trimmings along with best wishes and love.

Here's to the next 45 - - make it, the next 100!
